Study: French fry chemical may cure baldness
(AP)- French fries may not be good for your waistline, but your hairline is a whole different story.
Japanese scientists say they’ve found a new treatment for hair loss.
According to a paper published in the Journal Biomaterials, scientists were able to re-grow hair in mice using the method.
The method uses the same type of silicon used by some fast food restaurant fries to prevent frothing.
That silicone chemical helped the scientists mass-produce “hair follicle germs”, which a key ingredient in hair growth.
Preliminary research suggest the same method will be just as successful when it’s used on people.
